Venue: The Round Room.

If the strange world of steam punk is a thing of fiction, the reality of Victorian science and technology is often even odder.

Dr James Gregory brings you Atkins’ Gigantic Panorama, a multi-media presentation of science (and all of creation and civilization) for the people, 1850s-style! With a nation anxious to improve its education against imperial rivals, and win a war with the Russians, Atkins offered a patriotic, steam-powered way to peace and utopia through science. So, accompanied by select and appropriate music, elevate your condition with Dr Gregory.
